Let me catch my breath in this rate please!
Curious if there's any surprises left cause we definitely have entered the staples stage!
Well, one of the two artists I have left isn’t exactly known for setting the charts alight. Not sure if it’s considered a surprise that the song is still in, but I thought it would have left ages ago based on earlier eliminations (and the fact that it was always the same two people making up 90% of her thread back in the day, haha!).
One of our Dutch radio stations is currently doing a Top 1003 of Noughties songs people could vote for as well. They were playing the lower 800s this afternoon and The Fear and Black Coffee have already been booted out. Neither of them even managed to beat Gareth Gates and his stupid mistake…
I actually voted for that this week and was shocked by the voting list which missed out so many hits (like there was 1 Backstreet Boys single there?? But 5 Birgit Schuurman ones??)
Trying hard to think which act you could still have left!

This song makes me feel a way I can't quite describe but I just love. It’s like being taken to another galaxy by Kylie, the way it just builds and builds is the closest it feels like you can get to complete euphoria. From those opening synths, I’m just in awe and it feels like nothing else around me matters. Seeing this performed live as the sunset at Edinburgh Castle in 2019 was a life highlight. This is another song that has got me through some bleak times. Kylie just is a ray of infinite light this cruel world doesn't deserve and this song sums up that magic touch perfectly. In an ideal world, this was number one for ten weeks.
Fuck; I should've noted that my commentary/score was technically for the album version.

But the Freemasons mix still bangs and is an audio masterpiece so I'll allow it (I also don't want to inflict going back over these scores on you ddd) this gem desveres it's tens!!! I'm glad it's done so well here! We really do have significantly better taste than the GP.
Soz, lemme quickly edit the post (I am combining points for different versions of the same song by the same artist).I had always intended to vote for the album version too, but perhaps the votes for the two were combined. "Love At First Sight" is probably unlucky to have missed out on my ballot but when I compiled it I think I thought "The One" might be more likely to miss out on a high placing on a list like this and so threw it sympathy points; how fortunately wrong I was!
